Surprise your audience! | Maria von Nieukerken (conductor)
There are many ways to please the audience of a concert. Quite many ways, also unfortunately, to bore them to death, even with excellent music sung by excellent singers. Maria van Nieukerken can conduct excellent singers and produce excellent music. But she sometimes tries to change the relation between the listeners and the artists, to play with their expectations and surprise her audience. So don’t be surprised if she invites you to try something new.
Maria van Nieukerken is conductor and artistic director of the professional chamber choir PA’dam, the Belgian National Youth Choir BEVocal, Toonkunst Rotterdam and the Toonkunst Rotterdam Chamber Choir. In the summers of 2017 and 2018 Maria was conductor of the EuroChoir in the frame of the Sing Outside The Box project.
